15th January 2013.
You probably know Two Chefs, but just a short walk away is a lesser-known but not necessarily less delicious tze-char restaurant known as Lee Heng Restaurant. Unlike its famous counterpart, you don’t have worry about long queues and over hyped dishes that failed to impress.
Lee Heng Restaurant is quieter and the service was okay. Most importantly, I enjoyed the food here more than Two Chef’s. For a start, the Prawn Paste Chicken was really juicy, tender with a beautiful crispy batter and the chicken has a nice aroma from the prawn paste.
Also impressive in Lee Heng Restaurant is its Signature Pork Ribs, a nicely executed grilled pork ribs served with a sweet, tangy sauce which you could enjoy with its fluffy and crispy golden fried mantou. The pork ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender and still juicy when we consumed it.
The Yam Ring (15 SGD, m) has a nicely brown, crispy exterior and a soft put rough potato-mash like texture. Fans of yam would enjoy this.
Other dishes that we tried include the essential Kailan with Oyster Sauce with its surprisingly easy-to-eat stalks that ain’t bitter at all and the Fu Rong Omelette 芙蓉蛋 was decent too.
On a side note, it was my first time drinking Oldenlandia Drink otherwise known as Bai Hua She Cao Shui which was revolting.
